    You can give them yogurt off your fingers. Plain yogurt is best. Also finely cut up grapes (seedless). Just make sure you have chick grit available for them. Just a lttle bit of treats is good. You want them eating their chick food to grow.

    I have given mine oatmeal like Quaker oats after a week or so. Great training method also. They even climb into the container when I'm not looking. Friendly buggers. This also helps when you need to give them a good looking over if you find problems. Makes them very friendly and not afraid of you.

    Scrambled eggs are a hit.

    Cooked spaghetti noodles were a HUGE hit with my girls when they were little. I would cook them for a minute or two longer so they were extra tender and then just dangle it in their brooder and they would jump and chatter and it was a hoot to watch them.
